I used Alchemy II, which is a differnet strain of yeast than I normally use. On most Sparkling and white wine, I use EC118 because it is a good, clean performer. I think of it as ninja yeast; it gets in there, gets the job done and leaves no traces behind.

The Alchemy II is a boutique yeast blend that enhances volitile thiols like boxwood, passion fruit, grapefruit, kiwi, and stone fruits like peaches, nectarines and apricots. The 2018 Sparkling Blanc de Blancs displays all those gorgeous volitile thiols in addition to the usual suspects like honeysuckle and orange blossom. Basically, YUM!
